The Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change has just launched a funding call for joint transnational projects.  9 Million Euros of funding is available for research projects up to 36 months in duration. Projects have to be transnational and involve at least 3 eligible research teams from different countries involved in the call.

 

They are looking for research projects across three broad themes:

  • Sustainable strategies for protecting and managing cultural heritage
  • Use and re-use of all kinds of cultural heritage

The deadline for submission of pre-proposals is 28 April 2014. Detailed guidance is available on the JPI Website 

In order to help researchers or interested partners to find partners in other countries and organisations, a partner search tool has been established. This is an email group (called Heritage Plus) and has been set up so that researchers can subscribe to receive such requests, and to post requests themselves. To use this service, you need to subscribe at the following link – http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/HERITAGEPLUS.

Further detail on how to use this mailing list is provided in the guidelines and FAQs on the JPI website.
